With all that, it was a real treat for him to return to our world long enough to make a pie.

It is basically just another twist on the standard frozen strawberry dessert, but it far surpasses the quick-n-easy version made with that waxy “whipped topping” that comes in a plastic tub.
The cream component of the pie comes from cream cheese, condensed milk, and gelatin, which makes for a very dense texture. The two cups of strawberries are the only other ingredient, so the main flavor you get is STRAWBERRY!
The pretzel crust has a nice crunchy texture but is not noticeably pretzel-flavored. Broken down into their components, pretzels are just flour, water, and salt, which are three main ingredients of any crumb-style crust. With the added butter and sugar, it tastes just like a crunchy cookie crust with a hint of salt.
One thing to know in advance: the pie needs to freeze for 8 to 12 hours to solidify, so plan ahead.
We enjoyed this cool and refreshing treat on a day when the thermometer reached 111 (44 C). If you don’t already have a favorite recipe for a frozen strawberry pie, this one is worth a try. And, if you feel that you just can’t get enough strawberry pie, I also recommend this one.
